Franchise: Johnny Bravo

Johnny Bravo is the title character of the Johnny Bravo TV series (whom originated as a short from the What a Cartoon! TV series). Johnny Bravo is a muscular young man with a long blond pompadour hairstyle whom lives with his mother Bunny Bravo. A good portion of the humor of his show is his lack of intelligence (which his intelligence can go from average to seemingly non-existent) and his love for hitting on beautiful women and how they almost always reject him.  Johnny's design is one big homage of certain 50's icons such as Elvis Presley and James Dean and 50s-based icon Arthur "The Fonz" Fonzarelli.

For the first Johnny Bravo VC I thought I do a little something for the titular character himself... JOHNNY BRAVO! Now before we do the Monkey let us begin with this first...

Jeff Bennett- Series creator Van Partible picked Jeff as the first voice of Johnny due to how Jeff can do a good Elvis impression and one can certainly see why. Jeff's performance suited Johnny's persona well (both the earlier episodes and the somewhat later episodes when the show got retooled) and is a fine example of Jeff's voice work.

Marc Silk- Now I am sure many of you are wondering WHY Johnny had to have a different VA in the UK version of the show especially considering on how Marc was trying to impersonate Jeff. But to be fair Marc's impersonation was decent even if his voice was a little too high but his performance for the role is fairly okay.

Neil Kaplan- The quality of Neil's attempt at trying to impersonate Jeff is inconsistent at best as sometimes his voice and performance was decent and at other times not so much. Still its an okay example of Neil's work in general but its not one of the better "stand-in" voices of that game. (Though oddly enough Neil's voice for the role does occasionally sound like Richard Epcar though.)

Overall I am of course going with Jeff with Marc at a decent second and Neil as an okay third.

Jeff Bennett is Johnny Bravo.

Marc Silk is alright (but even as a British person myself even I didn't really see the point of redubbing it as Jeff was fine) and Neil Kaplan sounds off.

Jeff Bennett "IS" Johnny Bravo. Without him Johnny will never sound the same since 1997.

Jeff Bennett is the best part of the show. Without him, Johnny just isn't Johnny.

Jeff in my opinion is the voice of Johnny Bravo, and i didn't even have the fullest clue on how much he's pretty much an amalgamation of Elvis Presley and those other 2 until someone mentioned it. But yeah, for these 2 i haven't talk much of them because i didn't hear any of them what they sound like at it's fullest so i can't judge on both.

Simply listening to Jeff's CLIP is hilarious, hearing all the whooshing sounds when Johnny moves, you can just imagine what he's doing!

Neil is just....... bleh.

Jeff Bennett, no question about it.

On another note, I actually didn't even know there were other guys who played as Johnny Bravo

I thought Jeff Bennett was the ONLY Johnny Bravo. And he might as well be!

Very simple. Jeff Bennett is the ultimate Johnny Bravo

UK one sounds really weird

The video game one is pretty spotty. Sometimes he sounds pretty good others quite weak

1. Jeff Bennett - This impersonation of Elvis Presley fits Johnny real well
2. Neil Kaplan - He tries to sound like Jeff Bennett and it is quite workable
3. Marc Silk - I still don't see why Johnny was re-dub for the UK (facepalms UK)

Did they dub over just Jeff's character or all of the characters?

Neil Kaplan's version sounds more like John Wayne, Jeff Bennett wins.

Jeff Bennet is one of the funniest men on earth. I think the clip speaks for itself. Marc Silk was obviously just a stand-in, but he was OK. He seemed, as Pokejedservo pointed out, a little too high, and his accent was also strange. Neil Kaplan didn't sound much like Jeff Bennet at all and he was too focused on doing an impersonation that he didn't really get a chance to give it a real shot.

Jeff Bennett is far too epic to pass up, but the others were decent too.

Jeff Bennet not reprising his role in Punch Time Explosion? Seriously?

I think I remember Marc Silk's performances. Back in the day on Cartoon Network, they had Johnny doing live links between shows and kids could phone in a talk to him and request episodes and stuff.
